Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I was very happy to find out I wasn't the only one...not that I wish it upon others...but, that I'm not alone. I have a very busy "real" life, so I know I don't do it out of boredom. I think it just makes me a happier person as I don't spend time dwelling on the harsh realities of life. I use it to deal with life basically...like today, driving in really bad road conditions, it helped to have a DD person in the vehicle with me, telling me when to slow down or pass, etc...then, having to deal with a large company trying to charge me for something I no longer receive in services...it helped to vent on DD people to work through my anger with it. I know these people are not real, but it helps to talk to them.
